Rangatira Revetment Construction

A new rock revetment and beach works is being built to restore and protect the Whakarire Avenue Reserve, nearby properties and significant heritage sites.

The revetment and a wave spending beach will restore and protect the existing council-managed coastal reserve along the seaward side of the properties on Whakarire Avenue.

It will also protect residential properties and the two significant heritage sites on the reserve, as well as enhance the existing recreational opportunities in this part of Westshore.

During the project the drainage through the wall will be upgraded, and a shared pathway will be constructed.

Landscaping and planting will help secure the area behind the newly constructed revetment.

Contractors are working around the needs of kōrora (Little Penguins). This part of the Westshore coastline is an important breeding ground for the birds.



Estimated timeline:

Completed October 2023.


$4 million.
